A Suffolk County police officer was taken to the hospital with a possible concussion late Monday after striking her head on the ground during a scuffle with a larceny suspect, police said.
The officer, whose identity was not released, was taken to St. Charles Hospital in Port Jefferson, where police said she was treated and released.
The suspect, Victoria Diolosa, 21, of Port Jefferson Station, was arrested and charged with second-degree assault, second-degree harassment, resisting arrest and petit larceny, police said. She is scheduled for arraignment Tuesday in First District Court, Central Islip.
A police spokesman said that once the officer arrived on scene there was an altercation with the suspect, both the officer and suspect went to ground and the officer hit her head.
